From Maple Valley Gardens catalog, 1941: GILT EDGE (Whiting 1941) M. 40 in. As charming a flower as we have ever grown. We offer it as a gilt edged investment. The large beautifully ruffled flowers are of clear lemon yellow; the wide falls are smoothly gilded with deep empire yellow and this gilt edge extends around the falls in a distinctive and pieasing border. The fresh and dainty effect of the two tones of yellow is enhanced by the deep yellow heard. The color is particularly clean and pure and the flowers have a lustrous sheen as of enamel. The petals are very broad, the standards arch widely, touch at the tips but do not overlap; the falls are well rounded, arching out and down, giving the flower lovely rounded contours. The stalks are full but strong and well branched; the plants are very hardy and produce bloom and increase freely. It will be remembered by visitors as number 4011. $15.00.
GILT EDGE (Whiting '41). M. (Happy Days x Matula.) Yellow bi-color. Falls have light area in falls. Proving a dramatic parent for many colors ….. $.75. [Tell's Iris Gardens 1951].

  • The last two pictures are from 2016 and have more color. They are how this iris should look. The rest are from 2017 and do not show as much gilt edge. This iris bloomed a month late this year and looks a little washed out. -- LaJuanaWydick - 2017-06-05
